Review Summary



  • Pool area is extremely crowded, particularly on nice days
  • Very slow elevators
  • Some kitchens are in need of an update

Bottom Line

The 540-room Caravelle Resort is like many hotels in Myrtle Beach -- it's right on the beach, there are numerous pools, and it's always crowded. The bedroom decor is a bit more up-to-date than at some nearby hotels, but several of the kitchens showed wear and tear and the elevators move slowly, especially considering the hoards of people in line to use them. Overall, the hotel is a good value -- with freebies like free Wi-Fi and free parking -- but it doesn't offer much more than you would expect in Myrtle Beach (although the fitness center is on the ground level with floor-to-ceiling windows, unlike the many basement fitness centers in the area).

Downtown, on Ocean Boulevard and right on the beach

Map of Caravelle Resort

The hotel is right on the beach, along with numerous other hotels lining Ocean Boulevard. It's a busy street but there are sidewalks for the many tourists who are staying in the area.

Myrtle Beach is continually ranked as one of America's best family beach destinations, and offers visitors one-of-a-kind nightlife, more than 100 golf courses, and 60 miles of sandy shoreline. It's known to get a bit jam-packed, although the off-season brings smaller crowds -- but not those high southern temps ideal for sunbathing.
